Tapestry Commissions, tufted rugs and wall hangings
Statement

Jeni Ross designs and makes contemporary woven tapestries, and also designs rugs and tufted wall hangings.   Working with yarns offers richness and depth of colour and allows her strong colourful designs to bring texture and content to both homes and public buildings.

Jeni’s work can be seen across the UK, in hospitals, theatres, museums and government buildings.

Jeni is primarily concerned with colour and movement. Design influences come from many sources; fine art, performance, literature. Her designs use layers, contrasts and cycles; earth and air, night and day, negative and positive. These are interpreted using qualities of theatre; colour and illumination, the interplay of planes and textures.

Major Projects include:
 
•Current Project: Commission for Founders Library, New College, Oxford.
6 Woven tapestries.

• Tapestry for Government Art Collection: House of Lords Offices.

• 3 related commissions for Norwich Castle Museum.

• Woven tapestries for Strode Theatre Somerset & Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield.

• Tufted wall pieces for Belfast, Royal Oldham, Salford and Middlesbrough Hospitals.

•2 Panel Tapestry and tufted wool carpet for Government Science laboratories.
